String Interpolation help

Please help! This is not working and I don't know why!

// Enter your code below

let firstValue = 2

let secondValue = 4

let product = firstValue * secondValue

let output = "The product of", \(firstValue), "times", \(secondValue), "is", \(product)"

1 Answer

You don't need to close off the quotes when you want to interpolate a string. You also don't need the commas.

Your string that will be assigned to the output variable should look like this:

"The product of \(firstValue) times \(secondValue) is \(product)"

I hope this helps :grin:
